  • 15 Ratings

Details

This article provides steps to change the master node IP address after vRealize Operations Manager is installed and configured in a single-node vRealize Operations Manager vApp or Linux based cluster.

Solution

To change the master node IP address:

  1. Use the vRealize Operations Manager administrator interface to move the cluster offline.
  2. In vCenter, shut down the master node.
  3. Select the virtual machine and Edit Settings.
  4. Navigate to vApp Options (Web client) or Options > vApp Options (C# client), and verify that the vApp options are enabled.
  5. Navigate to vApp Options > Networking Properties (Web client) or Options > vApp Options > Properties (C# client), and enter the new IP address.
  6. Power on the master node.
  7. Log in to the console of the vRealize Operations Manager master node.
  8. Use the Linux operating system to change the IP address as you normally would.

    Alternatively,

    Run this command to change the IP address:

    /opt/vmware/share/vami/vami_config_net

  9. Restart the node.
  10. Stop the CaSA service by running the command:

    service vmware-casa stop
  11. Open this file in a text editor:

    /storage/db/casa/webapp/hsqldb/casa.db.script
  12. Locate any instances of the old IP address, and update them to the new IP address.
  13. Save and close casa.db.script.
  14. If the IP address did not appear in casa.db.script, start and stop the CaSA service by running these commands:

    service vmware-casa start
    service vmware-casa stop
  15. Start the CaSA service by running this command:

    service vmware-casa start

  16. Navigate to this directory.

    /usr/lib/vmware-vcopssuite/utilities/sliceConfiguration/bin
  17. Run this command:

    $VMWARE_PYTHON_BIN ./vcopsConfigureRoles.py --adminCS=
    new_IP_address

    Note: new_IP_address should be replaced with actual IP address.

    The script updates the IP address in these files. Alternatively, you could edit the files with a text editor.

    /usr/lib/vmware-vcopssuite/utilities/sliceConfiguration/data/roleState.properties
    /usr/lib/vmware-vcops/user/conf/gemfire.properties
    /usr/lib/vmware-vcops/user/conf/persistence/persistence.properties

  18. Navigate to this directory:

    /usr/lib/vmware-vcops/user/conf
  19. Open these files in a text editor:

    gemfire.locator.properties
    gemfire.native.properties
  20. In the files, locate instances of the old IP address, if any, and update them to the new IP address.
  21. Save and close gemfire.locator.properties and gemfire.native.properties.
  22. Use the vRealize Operations Manager administrator interface to bring the cluster online.
